PAX Preview: Antigraviator

Another fun racing game I got to check out while at PAX East was Antigraviator. It’s a really fun racing game where speed and agility are a must. You’re able to accelerate infinitely, so you can wind up going around insane curves and what you think is break neck speeds only to keep going faster. […]

Review: A Case of Distrust (Steam)

A Case of Distrust is a game I saw at the suggestion of a friend on the show floor or PAX West last year. Ben Wander’s A Case of Distrust really took me by surprise. It’s definitely a game I might have overlooked otherwise, but the visual style and design choices struck a chord in […]

PAX South 2018: Sleep Tight

Another fun game out of PAX South 2018 was Sleep Tight, by We Are Fuzzy. They’re an indie team comprised of veterans from both the gaming and video industry, which makes for a really good combination of visual and gameplay. Visually the game has a cartoon-esque feel, but not to the point where it doesn’t […]

PAX South 2018: A Duel Hand Disaster Trackher

You’ve probably seen my coverage of this game here, some of my tweets about it (#arcadeisnotdead), and one time we did an on-the-floor podcast here. What I’m trying to get across is that I’ve had some time on this game, and getting to see how much more polished it is from the last time I […]

PAX South 2018: The Messenger

I’d never seen The Messenger before, but was immediately drawn to this game when I passed the booth this weekend at PAX South. It’s a retro styled (8 and 16 bit) action platformer that throws nods to games of the past. Take a mix of Ninja Gaiden and some RPG elements, but it plays like […]
